Good Bye:  Our member and friend, Geri V.F., will be moving to Spring Lake this week.   Please make sure to say good bye and assure her of your prayers.

Our September Mission of the Month offering is Words of Hope.  Today is the last Sunday we will receive a gift for their work.  The FLC- M.O.M. bulletin board keeps updated emails from Jon Opgenorth, (www.woh.org ) as he shares powerful stories.

Siloam Church:  The Nepali are worshipping at 12:00p.m.  Please pray for their worship and the Lord to be glorified through our partnership.

Children and Worship Changes:  The Children and Worship room is being moved downstairs to the very last room in the hallway, formerly known as the piano room. The helper will stand upstairs outside the front of the sanctuary to direct children where to go, until the kids get used to going down stairs.

CONNECT is back!  Thank you to all who made this first week a great success. Many hands certainly do make light the load! Our dinner is 5:30 p.m., with Jr. High Youth, Children's Ministry and Pastor’s ACTS Study to follow. This year, our children's ministry will reach from 3 yrs - 5th grade.  We will have speakers, sports activities, Bible Time and LOADS of fun. Please invite neighbors, grandchildren, nieces and nephews.  Weds. will be the night they are waiting in the car for you!

CROP Walk: Save the date of Oct. 8; sign up to walk or rock.  Time is short; do what you can!

Christian Services: October 10- 26 the Christian Services will take calls from low income families for help with Thanksgiving food. This is an opportunity to help people and learn more about the functions of Christian Services’ Center. The only requests taken are for Thanksgiving Food, so the process is simple to learn. Staff provide needed training and stay available to assist you.  Volunteers are needed Monday through Friday, 9-12:30 or afternoons 12:30-4.  Call Christian Services office at 394-5413 or email CSLansing@acd.net for more information.
